NEW ORLEANS, La. (WVUE) - Tulane picked up its first American Athletic Conference win of the 2020 season in a 38-3 rout over Temple at Yulman Stadium.

Junior wide receiver, Deuce Watts, hauled in both of Pratt’s scores through the air and finished the day with five catches for 114 yards. Junior running back, Amare Jones, rushed for a game-high 92 yards on 12 carries.
